When the annual prize-giving is held at Eton College, one of Britain's most famous public schools, parents and pupils have a picnic on the playing fields. Among the dishes then served is this marvellously boozy mixture of strawberries, cream and crushed meringues, to which the school has lent its name

  • 1 lb strawberries hulled
  • 3 floz kirsch
  • 12 floz fresh double or whipping cream
  • 6 small meringues crushed


  • Reserve a few small strawberries for the decoration. Chop the remainder and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with the kirsch, cover and chill for 2 - 3 hours.
  • Whip the cream until it just holds its shape, then gently fold in the strawberries and their juices and the crushed meringues. Spoon into a glass serving dish, decorate with the reserved strawberries and serve immediately.
